Ahhhhhhh!!!! I didn't know this, and i'm sure a lot of you already do. But some of you might not know it. This is coooooool. When Bill Graham built Shoreline Ampitheatre he wanted it designed in the shape of a "Stealie." I found this on this website called thestrangestofplaces.com and heavens to Betsy, who'd a thunk it. This was a jaw dropper and a tongue wagger.. ; ) ummm.. ; )

Follow this link and see one very righteous animation/video of the whole thing. This kind of stuff just makes me smile. Obviously I'm a bit on the giddy side.

If you have to copy and paste the link into your browser then do it....it's well worth it....

That Bill Graham....He knew how to throw a party, and my goodness, this just shows how huge his love was for the GD.

Thanks Bill. Glad I got to meet ya once.

I knew it!

For me, the strongest, weirdest, trippiest, hippiest Grateful Dead vibe always came from good 'ol Shoreline and this proves it! =) Thanks for sharing!
